Poetry & rhyme – give up & give in
Phrasal verbs are often quite difficult to remember and are often presented as lists and exercises in books.
Presenting phrasal verbs with poetry, rhyme and story help students to understand the meaning more clearly and to memorise more enjoyably and effectively.
Students often don’t get enough speaking practice with phrasal verbs either, so I usually get my students to make up their own stories too, when it comes to phrasal verbs or new vocabulary.
This poem-story uses a lot of repetition and introduces some new vocabulary.
